What benefits (or not) are there to rod rigging?

I had a 33 foot Petersen rigged with rod rigging but never kept the boat for long because I upgraded to a high volume 36 footer. I never had any trouble with the rod rigging but have heard tell that it needs to be "tuned" regularly, something I never did.

I've thought about using rods again. Any comments?
